Apart from the Nautilus watch collection, Aquanaut watches are a unique sporty design with impressive water resistance and a sleek outfit crafted from robust materials. Each design from this collection is equipped with an in-house produced movement which offers a dual time mechanism – a feature that Aquanaut watches are renowned for. The famous porthole design of the watch invented by watch designer, Gerald Genta, joins characteristics like the iconic crown protecting bridge and the broad bezel which closely resemble the Nautilus.
The unique design of the Patek Phillipe Aquanuat watch appeals to the younger generation with its smooth, modernistic cushion-shaped lugs that introduce a supple rubber strap or leather band for completing a smart, casual look. What makes this collection of timepieces so special is that the designs are not limited to just stainless steel alone. Some cases are crafted from rose gold and yellow gold, and still uphold their promise of a 120 meter water resistance. The Travel Time watches from this collection offer a second time zone, making these watches incredibly useful for the avid traveller or the professional businessman needing to travel for work. The two push pieces on the left side of the case can be used to set the local time, without disrupting the positioning of the minute and seconds hand. In these designs, the date is presented in a ring at 6 o’clock – it offers an instantly recognisable characteristic that differs from other timepieces within the Patek Phillipe Aquanaut collection.
There are also a number of women’s Patek Phillipe Aquanaut watches available which use the wide bezel to showcase a selection of glistening diamonds. Extra diamonds can also be found on the surface of the buckle, creating a glamorous allure to the wrist for wearing to those special occasions in life. Ranking high on the performance front for sports wristwatches within the luxury watch industry, ladies are able to enjoy some of the finest elements of Patek Phillipe manufacture. Combining sportiness with elegance, these watches belong to one of the most popular lines from the Swiss manufacturer. The Patek Phillipe Aquanaut 18ct Rose Gold watch with a brown dial and matching brown rubber strap, is a stunning masterpiece which exudes luxury and grandeur on the wrist. The brown dial has received the iconic Aquanaut decoration to its surface, whilst luminous coated hands and markers light up in the dark. A date window has been dressed against a striking white background to enhance legibility and to provide a contrast against the rich chocolatey tones of the dial. This Patek Phillipe Aquanuat watch is powered via the 324 SC self winding calibre which offers a 45 hour power reserve.
Demonstrating variation throughout the collection, the ladies Patek Phillipe Aquanuat Luce Steel watch is dressed in clean white tones and a “Glitter White” embossed dial. The “Tropical” composite strap is seen throughout this collection, dressing these stylish watches with something comfortable and practical for wearing against the skin all day and long into the night. The sparkling diamonds adorned to the bezel of the watch total 46 all together – each one illuminating the dial and enhancing a modern, glamorous look.
